Summary

In this project, our primary interest is in toilets for low-income communities, and in defecation use. Pay-per-use public toilets are most commonly seen in public locations, but may also be constructed in low-income residential areas, serving both residential and transient users. One in three people across the world don't have a decent toilet of their own. But it's not just a question of lacking a household toilet - low availability of public and community toilets is also an issue.

Challenge

Many rural COMMUNITIES in Southeast, Nigeria have a problem with toilets. It doesn't have enough of them. That means hundreds of millions of people in the country end up defecating outside, which can spread diseases including cholera, typhoid and COVID-19. Poor sanitation in this rural communities lead to over 126,000 deaths every year from diarrheal diseases.

Solution

Public toilets play a role in community health and individual well-being. Where toilets are available, people can enjoy outings and physical activities in their communities. By letting people get out of their cars and onto their feet, bicycles and mass transit, public toilets can contribute to improved environmental health. Mental well-being is enhanced when people are out with families and friends and know a place "to go" is available. Public toilets also serve people who are "toilet challenge"

Long-Term Impact

As an "away-from-home" toilet room, a public toilet can provide far more than access to the toilet for urination and defecation. People also wash their hands, use the mirrors for grooming, get drinking water (e.g. refilling water bottles), attend to menstrual hygiene needs, and use the waste bins.
